Is Jean Prouvé's Potence Lamp the lighting equivalent of the little black dress? It's a timeless classic that instantly introduces a Parisian note of midcentury elegance to any room. Prouvé's Potence Lamp has inspired countless up-and-coming lighting designers; here's a roundup of some of our favorite Prouvé-esque options, many of which ring in under a few hundred dollars.
